Sure. Feel free to ask questions about the glib API, I appreciate we
need to add some more comments in there. gtkdoc?

Sure, it should be pretty simple. Just see client/pk-client.c for a
really simple example.

1. Is ConsoleKit running?
2. Is PolicyKit 0.5 installed?
3. Is PolicyKit-gnome 0.5 installed?
4. Does ck-list-sessions list any sessions?
5. Does ck-list-sessions list your session as ACTIVE?

Brilliant. We should probably move this to git when you have a
functioning client, and then other guys (me?) can commit API changes or
other fixes directly.

Yell if you need any help explaining the API. If you don't understand
something, then I need to write more documentation about it. :-)
